Unless you are expecting hundreds of thousands of hits per day, it doesn't matter what *nix flavor or what major distribution. they will generally all work the same, imho, the better question is, "what web server software should i use?" My answer to that is apache.

If you want a simple web server, then it seems you are making it harder than it should be. just throw a distro up and start apache.



Bah! I like FreeBSD and I like Linux, so it's really preference at this point since Apache runs both platforms. However, I really like Gentoo and so... :D

Lots of love for Gentoo around here. I am a fan of Debain and FreeBSD, but Debian is so much easier to setup and configure than FBSD.

Hey Gadget. :)

Hey, what's up young old-timer. :)

How are the wife, 2.5 kids, pets and job(s) going these days?

I'm getting ready to install debian on my laptop but my dedicated server runs fedora 1 with apache 1.3, I have worked with a lot of nix configs for web servers and have had the best luck with fedora1 and apache 1.3, I personally would not recomend apache2 for any mission critical, or possibly high traffic, or high uptime sites.

I've set up several webservers using FreeBSD and love it. One nice thing is Webmin (which is available for nearly every *nix variety, if you don't mind editing a lot of config files). I'm actually considering doind an over-the-web install to my leased Raq3 and getting 'Dead Rat' off of it. My vote is for FreeBSD.
